As a child I always dreamed of driving
a VW Golf. However, my experience with
my GTI has shattered my dreams. The
car has been in the shop four times in
less than one year. That is
unacceptable, but VW does not care
(Once the car is sold you will be lucky
to get a sorry).
The GTI feels faster than it is. The
ride is harsh and it does not go
through the corners well.
The back seats still rattle and my fear
is the catalytic converter will go next.
I like how the golf looks.
The engine teases me at 60, asks to go
faster and easily does. The car feels
solid and safe (it should at 3000+
pounds). If driving did not feel like a
wooden roller coaster ride it would be
a nice car to drive around town.
Can anyone convince Maytag to start
It is better to dream of driving the R32
than to own VW.
